Feather Hi-Stainless Platinum Double Edge Razor Blade

Posted on December 03, 2015 by quashnsa

I originally purchased the safety razor a few months ago. The best shave I ever experienced with the DE razor came from the Merkur blade that was shipped with the razor. I have a box of 100 Persona blades that have been doing a fine job, but not as well as the initial shave with the premium blade.

Feather Hi-Stainless Platinum (Japan) $0.27/blade @ 100 count
I tried this premium blade first. This blade out performed the Persona blades on the first pass. I was using the same Merkur DE razor, Proraso soap, and Escali brush to make the comparison. There was no drag or pulling across my heavy, four-day stubble.
